Default Farina'd at the Oscars

One of the podcasts I listen to, We Hate Movies, has a tradition of noting the shitty job the Academy does in recognizing important people who have passed.

They call it "getting Farina'd" - because that's the first glaring omission the Academy had in the 2014 broadcast, which outraged the guys of WHM. Chris Cabin did a running commentary of people missed on Twitter.

Just some of the names I'm annoyed they missed: Rene Auberjonois, Billy Drago, Peggy Lipton, Sid Haig, Luke Perry, Jessie Lawrence Ferguson, Tim Conway, Michael J. Pollard, Max Wright, and Katherine Helmond. They also missed Cameron Boyce, a Disney performer who died tragically early.

I understand they feel they have to cull the list somehow, but honestly they really suck at this. I think all of these people are Academy members and many of the above appeared in classics or Oscar nominated films. Luke Perry was in a movie nominated for the Oscars this year!

They managed to get Kirk Douglas in, but I suspect they already had that one planned.

Default Re: Farina'd at the Oscars

Leaving out Edith Scob is pretty embarrassing too. They probably had to bump her in order to properly honor Kobe Bryant's contributions to cinema.
